Day four | Crown King and the Swastika Mine

A mildly challenging trail and an awesome mine


After a good night's sleep, we woke to prepare some breakfast and pack up camp. Our camp was located near China Dam just north of Lake Pleasant along the Humbug Creek. There was a good amount of water flowing in the creek. Little did we know, 15 miles upstream Humbug Creek would cause us to pull a winch line. Many in the group were excited to experience the back road to Crown King. With huge anticipation, we made our way down Cow Creek Rd. towards the trailhead. The first stop was the Crown King rock for the iconic flexy photo.
